Waiting on Wednesday ~ The Goodbye Man
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Now called Can’t Wait Wednesday hosted by Wishful Endings. It’s where we display a book that we can’t wait to read because it sounds so good. 🙂
Colter Shaw, the itinerant reward-seeker readers met in The Never Game
, returns in a new adventure.
Colter takes on a new case when he learns of a reward–two, actually–being offered in Gig Harbor, a small spot in Washington State. Two white teenagers decided to deface a few black churches, and then to set one aflame. But as it turns out, it wasn’t empty. And when the preacher and the janitor emerged from the burning building, they were shot–and the suspects drove off.
So state police and the town are offering $50,000 for help in finding the two suspects. The family of one of the two suspects is offering $900 for help in proving his innocence.
Game for a challenge, hungry to see justice done, and intrigued by the forces in opposition in this specific case, Colter drives north and west…only to discover that no case comes without its unexpected complications, or without its considerable dangers.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series called The Never Game. This one comes out May 12th so bit of a wait but the way the years fly by I am sure it will get here in no time!
